Manchester City and Super Eagles teenage forward, kelechi Iheanacho’s agents have demanded a bumper new deal from The Citizens seeking 200,000 pounds-a-week over five years contract.
The 19-year-old Nigeria international has netted 13 goals in all competitions this season with seven of them in the Premier League.
In October, Manchester City offered Iheanacho 50,000 pounds-a-week.
According to AfricanFootball.com, City have opened talks with Iheanacho’s handlers over a new contract after he justified his promotion to the first team at The Etihad with goals and five-star displays in his debut season in the English Premier League.
It should be noted that Iheanacho is currently earning “between 10,000 and 18,000 pounds a week” after coming through the City youth ranks.
AfricanFootball.com was specially told by an insider that the least paid City first-teamer is on 180,000 pounds-a-week with the biggest earner at the club Yaya Toure pocketing almost twice that sum.
Iheanacho is expected to bag a new contract by July.
